    Comments about Platinum Series Bi Color Touch Dome Lights, White/Blue:

    A year ago I was very pleased with these lights.

    Now, not so much.

    Out of three units, two have failed already.

    One unit after about 8 months - the touch sensors stopped working and I kept getting blue strobes at night while trying to navigate. The white LEDs on that unit don't activate at all.

    The second unit went after 11 months - simply no response at all on either the blue or white touch sensors.

    Upon removing the unit, what initially appeared to be waterproof epoxy sealing the unit has now cracked, peeled back and exposed the insides of the light to the elements.

    For $90 I would expect more than a year's life out of these things - especially when the old tungsten 12v fixtures they replaced lasted 19 years!

      Comments about Platinum Series Bi Color Touch Dome Lights, White/Blue:

      I bought three of these based on the reviews of the white/red version.

      The dome is heavily frosted giving an even light output, you can barely make out the LEDs inside.

      The dimmer function is great - at night I find the white lights too bright for chilling, but perfect for reading.

      The blue is great for protecting night vision or providing dim lighting overnight for guests to find their way.

      The back of the fixture is very simple and plain, all held in place by some kind of set-hard plastic that leaves just the wires exposed. Looks very watertight. Let's hope they last a long time.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Although the description lists the lights as 4" diameter, the pieces I received are 6.75" in diameter which is quite a bit larger. Fine for my application, but do check if you have limited space.
